We made a rather sharp exit from the hotel yesterday afternoon to the nearby safety of the proton centre just as the tornado sirens started! It really was just like a film, the radio went off and started broadcasting an automatic message, the traffic lights flashed red and there was a palpable sense of alarm. We spent 2 hours sheltering before the all clear was given. In the end the actual “twisting” centre passed by about 8 miles away leaving some serious damage and loss of life. It felt like a relatively close shave. Back to why we’re actually in tornado alley! We got good news yesterday that Thomas’ cancer has not returned on yesterday’s ct scan, so we aim to start treatment next week. We are so relieved that it hasn’t come back and that we avoided a tornado too! This picture is us all sheltering in the proton centre treatment room!
